Bengaluru, Mar 24: Unable to face the truth spoken by Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, Narendra Modi regime has proved its cowardliness by disqualifying the former Congress president and the incident is a “bad day in Indian democratic history,” said Congress opposition leader in the assembly Siddaramaiah on Friday.
In a press statement, he said the “ruling BJP has driven the last nail in its own coffin,” he said and declared that there was no question of being afraid of these fascist forces.
“We are waging a bitter battle against the gross injustice on the streets as well as through the courts,” he said.
Siddaramaiah said an unofficial emergency has been declared in the country and the Centre’s decision on disqualifying Rahul Gandhi within a day of the court judgement despite the suspension of the order for a month by the same court and pointed out that the BJP and NDA regime has sent out a message to all critics.
“This is not a threat or warning just for Congress party or Rahul Gandhi. It is a blatant warning to all democratic forces and individuals fighting against injustice. It is time for all to fight unitedly forgetting all other political differences,” he said.
However, Siddaramaiah urged all Congressmen to restrain themselves even though lacs of Congress workers all over the country are deeply hurt. “Let us conduct our protests peacefully without resorting to any untoward incidents,” he appealed.
